RUD reveals resistant chains

Manufacturer RUD has presented its ICE chain, which offers resistance to extreme temperatures ranging from - 60°c to 300°c.

The Grade 120 chain is coated with RUD's iconic pink coating, which acts as an overheating indicator, showing the temperature at which the chain can be safely used.

If the chain reaches temperatures of above 300°c, it will turn from pink to brown, and then black, indicating that the chain is unsafe to use and must be taken out of service.

RUD adds that the ICE chain also offers a 30 percent reduction in weight compared with Grade 80 hooks, and uses less material and energy due to its light construction and easy handling. It also has a 60 percent higher breaking force than Grade 80 chains and is extremely tough and resilient to sharp and rough edges, said the manufacturer.

Due to its strength and resistance to extreme temperatures, RUD says that its ICE chain is well suited for use during polar and arctic projects, as well as offshore and at ports or construction sites, where there are many sharp and rough edges.
